San Francisco Giants to Sign Top Draft Picks Chris Shaw and Jalen Miller

Some good news for Giants fans while the team is mired in a nine game home losing streak — the Giants have agreed to terms with their second 1st round draft pick Chris Shaw (31st overall) and their 3rd round draft pick Jalen Miller (95th overall).  Shaw agreed upon a $1.4 million signing bonus, a savings for the team of $485,000 below the slot value for the pick.  Meanwhile, Jalen Miller agreed to a $1.1 million signing bonus, approximately $500,000 more than the slot value for his spot in the draft.

With Giants having received two first round draft picks and signing Jalen Miller, who the four main pre-draft raters ranked between 35th and 60th overall (just slightly better than Chris Shaw), this could be a very productive draft year for the Orange and Black.  Now it’s just a matter of signing Phil Bickford (18th overall) and second round pick Andrew Suarez (61st overall), and the Giants can start developing this handful of promising young prospects.

    According to the McCovey Chronicles, the Giants have signed their 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 10th and 11th round draft picks, and have also reached agreements with their 15th, 17th and 40th round picks, who are all high school and junior college players. I’m really feeling like this is going to be a good draft class for the Giants.
